Just bought a box of these new Noslers and planning to load a few.I have a very good load for the 168 Barnes TSX using H-1000.I was wondering if I could just substitute the 165 Accubond and try the same load,everything else the same:grs.of powder,primer,brass.The only thing changing would be the bullet and OAL.I know that I should back off and work up when changing any component.Just hoping that I might get around the same velocity or slightly higher with the 165.
I have the following on hand:H-4831sc,Ramshot Hunter,H-1000,Ramshot Magnum,RL-22.Do any of these look promising to start with?
I have run some posibilities through Quick Load,but the new Accubond is not listed in this weight.
Although,the 168TSX combo has been a winner,I was hoping or thinking a softer bullet might be better for our small Texas whitetails.
Thanks for any ideas.
